In Quantum theory it's one thing*, but in reality, it's always a cat, either sleeping or waking, along with a broken tchotchke that was left in there with it.




*actually two things.

Ya know in the 8yrs we have had Mr Tail we only have a handful of good pics, he just doesn't photograph well for some reason. It took me awhile to get him to turn around to take that picture the other day, he was looking out the window & had just jumped down onto his stool when I seized the moment, looks a little crosseyed though. I am hoping to copy all my pictures from my old HDD by next week & I can post some action shots.

The gal told me she had been adopted, but the woman had brought her back, saying she was a bit "sketchy". I said, "WTF with that?" , and she proceeded to tell me what she meant. I know what sketchy means, I told her. I just can't believe someone would actually return a cat. "We'll take her" I said.
Good for you, I just don't get returning a pet either, all though I was close to returning my dog to the pound after a few days of having her she was so bad, but I didn't. Now 4 years later I am still kicking myself for keeping her

We have a lot of special needs kitties, I know half of the black cats from the same litter we have are bipolar, they want you too pet & love them one minute to running away in a panic because you looked at them the next.

We love them too, although I have only had one black cat growing up at my parents, we jumped right in with our 7 & now we are always drawn to them when we see them up for adoption.We would take them all in if we could, god help us if we ever win the Power Ball or Mega Millions.

Well, I guess since there are so many cat lovers, I will have to find the time to post pictures of my 4 felines: Delia, Brianna, Shadow and Sheeba.
So many beautiful cat pictures ! And all from bike lovers, too .

HA! That's funny. My orange cat likes her water best when it's running water. She also prefers to drink out of my hand while the water is running. I don't indulge her all that often though.

So when Gus's sister got hit by a car last year we told the girls they could bring home one of the neighbor's kittens. That was Chester. He promptly taught his sister, Chelsea how to use the cat door and where the food and litter box were. She really turned up the charm so we didn't throw her out.
If you leave a glass of water where the sun hits it she likes to watch the "sun fairies" as my girls call them. So last week I borrowed a disco ball;

I just break out a laser pointer. For even more fun, use two laser pointers and have the dots chasing each other... Drives the kitties bananas!

I have done that... My cat Widget gets easily overwhelmed when she sees two of them. It's hilarious to watch.

This is Theodore. He is a grumpy old cat so we often we refer to him as Grumpa. He was an abandoned kitten and half dead we got him. My wife nursed him back to health with infant formula and a dropper.

This is Helios. He is enormous but a suprisingly excellent hunter.


This is Atlas. He likes cats much more than they like him.


This is Baron Alexander Von Floof. He was mighty and majestic and sadly is no longer with us.


This is Goliath. She was a tiny cat but feared nothing and no one. She only lost on battle and is sadly no longer with us.


This little fella was Ivan the Magnificent. He was born with a brain tumor and we lost him this past July.


This is Athena the day we adopted her. She is a fearless warrior that takes crap from nothing and no one. After two months, my son couldn't get over the loss of Ivan so we adopted Athena.

For a laugh, I also submit this...

OK - I'll play....here are our two: Tabby is Uma (short for Umlaut, because of a couple of funny dots on her head that frankly I can never find), and Otis (like the elevator).



The two joined our family back in 2004 when our previous cat Whatmo (as in "what mo' can a po' cat do?") died after 23 human years with us.....she is still missed.

Wow! 23 years!
That a long time for a cat.
I wonder why they all cannot reach that age, especially "indoor" cats that get good food and all the rest and attention they might need. Instead we have less appealing animals like land turtles a parrots that easily live close to and sometimes way over 40 years.......
